I’m confused as to what is happening in step 1 of this exercise, and hoping someone can enlighten me please?

As per step 1, I added display:flex; at line 90. When I do this, the pictures swap from being arranged in rows to columns, but I don’t understand why. I had assumed I would need to make the .col div’s flex-boxes and set their flex-direction to column to achieve this.

I’m guessing I’m missing something fundamental about block vs inline.

Any clues would be greatly appreciated. :slight_smile: Thanks.
